2010 Maggies Open for Registration

New Web & digital categories, online access and more

The 2010 Maggie Awards program has been streamlined and improved to make entering and judging easier than ever.

Entries into most Maggie categories can be uploaded onto the Maggie Web site. (No more tearsheets or mounted artwork.) Participants will have online access to Maggie registration and entry forms in a secure environment. Easy-to-follow instructions, FAQs, category selection, upload requirements, judging criteria and secure payment are available. Publications must carry a 2009 cover date and be published when submission is made.

The Maggie Awards cover 130 categories, including 27 new Web and digital edition categories. Deadline for Entries is January 19, 2010. To enter, see www.wpa-online.org for the “Maggie Call for Entries” and registration.

As a special incentive to enter, WPA is offering one free entry to all publishing companies who either renew their WPA membership or join as a new WPA member before Dec., 2009. You must enter more than one category to qualify, and the cost of your first entry will be deducted from your membership rate. The WPA will announce the Maggie winners at the 59th Annual Maggie Awards Banquet, May 7, 2010, Sheraton Gateway Hotel, Los Angeles Airport.
